When an important event in your life ends or you lose someone you care for, you need closure. Closure is what brings you that sense of peace and serenity that everything will be ok. It helps you move on with your life and from the situation. It brings an end to one thing, opening a door for new things to enter.
Sometimes, we don't get closure. What happens when you don't get the closure that you need? How do you find that closure when you weren't prepared for the situation? Moving on without closure isn't easy to do what so ever, but maybe that's what needs to be done.
After assessing the situation you are in and have figured out what your closure needs to be, it is then time to take steps toward closing that book. As we may be a part of that book, we don't always get to be the author of it. We can try our hardest to be the writer and control our closure, but we may not be granted that luxury.
In some instances, we cannot choose whether we get the closure we feel we need or not. Often in our book of life, we have several authors, people we have let into it, and they also have control of the same book. They may not feel the same as we do and so we only have part of the control of the situation. With that being said, they can stand in our way and we will not get what we need.
We may not get the closure we feel we need and deserve. If that is the case, we have to dig deep and find a different way to move on from what we are going through. An alternate option may not be what we want or even what we truly need, but what else can we do?
We can't control everything and everyone. We don't always get what we want. We don't always get what we need either. In life, we have to take what we get and the make the best of what we got.
If you feel you didn't get the closure in your situation that you wanted, don't give up. There is a way and you will find it eventually. You can't lose hope, because hope is what will get you through.
